How many times have I wished that when I wake up, all these were just a dream?
Nurse: You’re up, Nigata-san?
Nurse: How are you feeling? I’ll remove the IV drip.
Yui: …Is this the hospital?
Nurse: Can’t you remember? You’ve fallen from the stairs cause of anemia. / The doctor said it’s because of stress and lack of rest. / You have slept for a whole day. Even though you’re very busy, you must get some rest. / If you’re feeling better, you may be discharge.
Yui (thinking): …Right / I was in the middle of shooting Shiseikan’s testing ad … then…
Nurse: Are you alright? You’ve got a sprain. Try not to move about too much.
Yui (thinking): The pain in my ankle pulls me back to reality. / Why did I fall down? / It’s true that I haven’t slept well lately. / But it’s not just that.
Yui (thinking): The reason behind is…
Words on the magazine: Let’s go to Africa!
Aki recalling Kazuki’s words: Wanna come with me to Africa?
Aki: T…Thanks for your hard work today, Nanako-san.
Nanako: I’ll have the usual.
Waitress (small text): Yes, ma’am.
Nanako: Sorry to make you wait, Aki.
Aki: Not at all! I’ve just reached here too. (small text): It’s alright!
Nanako: Okay then, / Congratulations for your first advertisement!
Aki: T….Thank you.
Aki: Wow! What is this? It’s super yummy! (small text): Meat???
Nanako: I’ve just talked to the president about starting up my own agency and he’s okay with it.
Nanako: Yes, he’s even going to invest in my new agency.
Aki: That’s just great! Congrats!
Sfx: Claps hands
Nanako: What are you saying / I can’t truly say I’ve split off if I accept his proposal. / It’s like still depending on the president.
Aki: It’s true. (small text): It’s the adult world.
Nanako: By the way,
Nanako: Did you sent anything to Paris?
Aki: Eh... Paris?
Nanako: “VOGUE PARIS” / the modeling agency from Paris contacted / and asked whether you’re interested to work with them.
Aki (recalling): Just trying to send my composite (T/N: portfolio? – I’m not sure) and a cover letter to VOGUE in Paris.
Aki: WHAT!!! / Me … Paris??
Nanako: I’ve miscalculated. / I’ve planned to make you my top model for the new agency.
Aki: Right … / Now is your crucial time …
Nanako: It’s your chance to outshine on the world stage.
Nanako: What now?
Aki: I…I’m sorry … You’ve been so good to me …
Nanako: Didn’t I say not to worry about me…
Aki: I’ve been hesitating. / Whether or not to quit modelling.
Aki: The man I love is leaving Japan.
Aki: H…He asked me to go with him…
Nanako: This is absurd! / You can’t find a chance like this again. / Going to Paris is a peak spot in every model’s career. / Your life will totally change! / For god’s sake, / none of you satisfy me. / Both you and Yui.
Aki: Yui…? / What did she do? / Is it about the advertisement? Is she upset to have lost to someone like me till she…
Nanako: Lost? / No, she didn’t lose. She just didn’t get to shoot the testing ad. / It’s usual that she didn’t get chosen. You don’t have to worry…
Aki: Why? / I’ve met her at the shooting location! We still talked together…
Assistant1: Yup. Seems like she fell from the stairs while shooting.
Assistant2: Really? Is she seriously injured?
Assistant1: Hmm, just a sprain but seems like she has been cancelled for tomorrow’s outdoor shooting.
People at the bg (Small text): We’re done. / Laughing
Assistant1: Didn’t you know?
Assistant2: You don’t have to hide it. Everyone knows that you guys are all lovey dovey.
Kazuki: It’s not like that …
Small text: Yeah…yeah
Sfx: Phone ringing
Incoming call: Shina Nanako
Little girl: Mummy, What’s this smell? / You smell so nice. / Is this the smell of washed clothes? / The fabric softener?
Yui: It’s Chanel no5.
Yui (thinking): What will mum say if I haven’t chosen this path to become a model?
Little Yui: Wow!
Little Yui: Mummy, It’s so beautiful. Everything is so glamourous.
Nanako: Yui, Paris Fashion Week is the peak of all fashion shows.
Little Yui: the peak of all?
Nanako: Yes, the top of the world.
Little Yui: Hmm / It’s like walking in the light… / It’s beautiful, isn’t it. Mummy…
Nanako: Yeah… It is.
Nanako: That … is called the runway.
Yui (thinking): Mum’s dream is on that runway. / At that time I wasn’t really sure but thought that may be mum wants me to become a model. / I struggle to fulfill her dream.
Yui (thinking): I’ve always been afraid that mum regretted to give up on Paris Fashion Week just because of me. / And regretted to have given birth to me. / However, I’m not made for the fashion world. / I can’t pursuit mum’s dreams. / Why isn’t it me? / Why is it someone who’s not even her fresh and blood like Aki…
Sfx: Aki: panting
Aki: Finally found you, Yui! I’ve been calling you!
Yui: Oh… I left my hand phone at home …
Aki: How are you? Did you get any wounds? Can you walk?
Yui: I just sprain my ankle.
Aki: Is it painful?
Yui: You’re too noisy. Don’t bother with me.
Aki: I can’t leave you alone!
Aki: Sorry, I’ve just heard about your accident from Nanako-san. / I was so shocked. / Do you need help? / I can help clean up …
Yui: Are you crazy? / This injury, / it was all on purpose.
Aki: Huh? On purpose … / Why … / don’t tell me …
Aki: You didn’t want to lose.
Yui: I didn’t want to do this job in the first place! / Modelling is not what I want to be. / I did it just to defeat mum.
Aki: What are you saying…
Yui: You don’t have to mull over it. / Isn’t it because of my injury that you’ve got the offer?
Aki: Hello, is this Shiseikan?
Yui: Wait… What are you doing?
Aki: Turning down the ad offer obviously!
Yui: Aren’t we… / (small text): Give it back!
Yui: Aren’t we … friends … / Even if I won, / I can’t bring myself to be glad / if I have to trampled on you.
Yui (thinking): …. Are you pitying me?
Yui: So you’re saying that you’re never serious with modeling?
Aki: I’m serious! I’ve put my all into this career.
Aki: But / I can’t decide …. everything is important… / friends, love, dreams… / So what? / Is it bad that I don’t want to lose you..? / The man I love … Kazuki-san is also going to Africa…
Aki: Is it wrong that I don’t want to be separated from him…?
Nanako: …. Sorry to call you out abruptly.
Kazuki: It’s alright.
Nanako: Take a seat. Want some coffee?
Kazuki: Yes please. / So what do you want to talk to me?
Nanako: You’re leaving Japan, Nakai-kun?
Kazuki: Yeah, I’m going to Africa. /The news sure travels fast. / … so why…
Yui or Nanako(thinking): There is something that I truly desire / no matter what’s the cost. / I can do anything / to become a top model.
Yui: If you think that you can have everything your way, you’re mistaken! / If you can’t choose modeling that means it’s just worthless to you! / The dream you’ve share with me is just bull shit! (T/N: please change it to any nicer word than BS. Thanks)
Yui: Can you declare that you can toss your career and never regret over it later?
Yui (thinking): You have everything that I yearn for / the talent / that I can never achieve.
Yui: The modelling world is not that simple. / If you can’t even deal with it…
Yui: You can just quit!
Yui (thinking): How relieve I’d be if I could do it too.
Yui (thinking): But / I can’t. / No matter how, I can’t throw modelling away. / For me, modelling / does it only gives me pain?
Sfx: Incoming call from Kazuki-san
Kazuki (from the phone): Hello?
Aki: HUH? / Wait… / Hello … Kazuki-san? Right now… Huh? Yui? / YUI!!
Aki: … ko / Nanako-san has collapse!
